Outdoor Wednesday

Welcome to my first Outdoor Wednesday, sponsored by our lovely hostess Susan at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com Please visit her site for more lovely postings. This is a pic I took last summer along Lake Michigan. Remember, I don't have the greatest digital camera, but it was just starting to get light out, and I thought I would give it a try!
This pretty waterfall is Tahquamenon Falls. Located along Michigan's Upper Peninsula, it's a big one, and it gets it's color from the iron ore that was mined in this area. The color made it look like a big root beer float, and I kept thinking I could reach out and drink it!

Pictured Rocks lake shore located along Michigan's Upper Peninsula goes for almost 20 miles and is a colorful expanse of forest -topped rocks. This was truly a breathtaking tour, and one I would truly like to take again. It was so peaceful and the water was a turquoise color. Thanks for stopping by, Cindy
